Business modelling techniques
Typically solid lines indicate contractual, tangible revenue-generating or funding related deliverables and their directional transactions. Dashed lines show the critical intangible or informal deliverables such as knowledge exchanges and conveyed benefits that build relationships and keep things running smoothly.

In recent years, considerable attention has focused on capability mapping. A capability map defines a hierarchy of capabilities required for the enterprise to deliver the desired results along with assessment of the importance and performance of these capabilities. The capability map is analyzed to identify those capabilities that require improvement—often called a capability “heat” map.
A capability map, as used in capability analysis, defines a hierarchy of capabilities required for the enterprise to deliver the desired results along with assessment of the importance and performance of these capabilities. The capability map is analyzed to identify those capabilities that require improvement— often called a capability “heat” map, an example of a part of which is shown in Figure 2, below.

And that is their business strategy
Part of why we're dropping our membership.
I just saw a documentary about Costco on CNBC, and it emphasized that their business model is that people will always pick up a few extra things that they didn't plan on since they have limited supplies of so many things (toys, books, plants, etc.). I don't like to be played like that.
Heres the business model,
We don't BUY the debt, we TAKE ON the debt.. genius, right? A sound business strategy. Then we spend all of our freetime kindly asking people if they could make a contribution towards paying the debt we were nice enough to lift off their shoulders. And if no one ever pays, well then I die as one very indebted man.
It might just be crazy enough to work, if the system doesn't have a shit-fit and implode that is
Agribusiness and Monsanto
Just an anecdote about this .
On our vacation last year through the badlands of Alberta ( milk River)
we ran into an old couple at breakfast in our motel. We shared a table. He was 80 and had recently sold his farm to a corporation. It was in the Peace river area. Farms up there are generally huge , I think he had a section.
He was not able to cover his margins with the cost of production and loans for production. He was a pioneer with his parents but his kids saw the writing on the wall and opted for careers. Monsanto was a dirty word and is in Alberta.
The strategy involved with Monsanto is the complete take over of agriculture using the law as a cudgel
I don't care what his business model
Or marketing strategy is. i just like to listen to him sometimes.
actually, maybe i do care, because i thought it was crappy when he came out with diet bars and other diet food to supplement his weight-loss plan, because i thought part of the basis of his plan was how to eat 'real food' and maintain a healthy weight for yourself.
